Voice Rising No. 6: Adam O'Fallon Price, Denise Heinze, Jon Leon, and Connor Winkler read works in progress
Tuesday 11/5, 7 pm
Join us at Flyleaf for the sixth entry in the Voice Rising reading series. Hosted by local writer and musician Michael Venutolo-Mantovani, Voice Rising features a slate of local and unpublished writers presenting their work alongside a select writer of national acclaim. Each writer will read for ten minutes and then take questions from the audience. Come out to experience the creation of new works in real time, in an intimate and friendly setting, with folks from your community.
